Japanese daily sight
Do you know cat’s cradle? あやとり (ayatori)
It’s just play with knitting wool or string
My eldest daughter is good at playing it.
This is a parachute.
This is a helmet.
This is a necktie.
This is a coffee cup.
Have a wonderful day, everyone
It looks so difficult ,at first sight….
Year, I think so. I respect my daughter.
seems it is a lovely fun… Can I make it I am not sure But I will try. Thank you, have a nice day, love, nia
Thanks much. I’m glad that you like and will try it. I’m sure that you can enjoy it.
I remember learning cat’s cradle when a child and then teaching my children. It’s not easy but these are wonderful!
That’s great. I’m happy that you also know it.
I know it from my childhood, but I think it is forgotten now days. If children in Japan are playing it now, I´m sure it appear after some time here in DK.
That’s nice. I’m sure that you were a good player when you were child.
I used to do this as a child. That is a while ago. Nice to see it again, on the other side of the world.
That’s nice. Many people in other countries sound to enjoy it.
That’s really cool. I haven’t seen any of those shapes before. I only know the basic ones.
I see. Some of them are very difficult for me but children can make them well.
I’m awful at that. Grrrr.
Haha. It’s fun.
I used to make this all the time with rubber bands as a kid. I wouldn’t even know how to start one now. :_)
Thank you for stopping by. The rubber band may not be common but some people must use it. Interesting.
I used to play this when I was little (in the U.K.). I only recognise the last shape though and we didn’t call it coffee cup. I think you needed two people to do it well. I remember trying to be the second person by using my toes! It didn’t work very well.
Thanks for stopping by. Yes, if two persons make this well, they can make greater shapes, indeed.
That’s a fun game!
I remember doing that when I was a girl. It is a lot of fun and not easy the first time
How nice Yes, it’s not easy but really fun
This reminds me of making jacob’s ladder with string.
That sounds interesting Thanks!
I used to spend hours playing games like that when I was little
That’s also nice. I was surprised that many people used to play it.
Oh, I loved playing cat’s cradle as a child. Wonderful shots.
That’s good. Thanks! Have a wonderful day.
It looks like your daughter has mastered the game!
When I played Cat’s Cradle I always created a giant knot!
I admire my daughter’s skill. Thanks.
Cat’s craddle was my childhood play and I tried some figures recently with a piece of string. *^v^* It brings back memories.
That must be a great memory. thank you so much.
very cool. your daughter is very talented. i don’t think i can do any of these. i might get my fingers tangled in the string. lol
Thanks It’s fun if we can make nice shapes
Cute! I saw some elementary kids playing ayatori on the train the other morning.
That’s good It’s a simple game but there are many kinds of shapes
I played this string game when I was a kid, unfortunately I totally forget how to play it now
That’s great You can remember a way of playing, I think
I used to play it as a child, but don’t remember how to do it anymore.
That’s great. You must have made very nice one.
I remember it in my childhood. we played it a lot.
How nice! It must have been a nice one
I was very delighted to see that yet today children play with strings. When I was a child, I played also and it was very popular on our countryside at those days.
It’s very interesting that many people in other countries played it in their childhood
This brought back memories! Fun post!
Thank you for stopping by Gald to hear that
I played this as a child. It was a lot of fun, but I am not familiar with any of the patterns your daughter is showing.
I see. That’s nice if you knew something new about it.
I used to play that when I was small! It is quite fun!
Great It must be fun for you
